The Texas A&M football team built off of the momentum gained from a huge upset win over No. 1 Alabama and took down the Missouri Tigers away from home in a convincing win. The Aggies pushed to 5-2 with their 21-point conference win.
This sent Jimbo Fisher’s squad four spots up from 21st to 17th in the AP Poll, a move that happened as a result of the downfall of a few other teams.
This puts the Aggies one spot away from six wins, which would give them bowl eligibility. As mentioned in last week’s bowl projections, some Aggie fans would have expected the team to already have bowl eligibility. That said, it’s hard to complain about the season that the team has had, especially considering an injury to Haynes King that derailed the offense.
The Aggies are still very much on track to go bowling. It would take nothing short of a disaster for this team to slip up and lose all of their remaining games.
Which bowl games are the Texas A&M football team projected to appear in for the 2021 season?
The Texas A&M football team’s image continues to improve in the eyes of national media. They’ll still shoot higher than what they’re projected for, but this week’s bowl projections will give fans more hope than last week.
- Yahoo Sports‘ bowl projections have the Aggies taking on a currently undefeated Michigan State football team in the Outback Bowl on New Years Day.
- CFN has the Texas A&M football team taking on Michigan State in the Outback Bowl as well.
- Brett McMurphy has the Aggies taking on Michigan State in the Outback Bowl. Shocker.
- Athlon Sports has the Texas Aggies taking on the Michigan State Spartans in the Citrus Bowl on January 1st.
- 247Sports‘ bowl projections didn’t change from a week ago, with the Aggies taking on Baylor in the Texas Bowl again on January 4th.
Last week, the Texas A&M football team was projected for bowl games like the Taxslayer Bowl or the Mayo Bowl. This week, they took a step up, as their most common opponent was a 7-0 Michigan State football team.
If the Aggies continue to win, their stock should continue to rise throughout the year.
